However, before I try your method, I did have one question. I want to disable the charms bar inasmuch as it is driving me over the edge. However, I still want to know how to access it whenever I need it. I know that after I disable it, there is some kind of key combinations I can type on the keyboard to pull it out whenever I need it. Do you know what those key combinations are?
